Officials at Warner Bros/20TH Century Fox have revealed to CNA that Peru, where the conglomerate has distribution rights, will be the first country in Latin America to debut the movie “The Passion of the Christ,” on March 25. One day later the movie will debut in Mexico, and on April 8 it will debut in Argentina.
Warner Bros/20TH Century Fox officials told CNA the movie “The Passion of the Christ,” directed by Mel Gibson, will debut in Peru a month after its debut in the United States, on Thursday, March 25, the day on which the Church traditionally celebrates the Feast of the Annunciation.
In Mexico 20th Century Fox announced the film will debut on Friday, March 26, with an advanced screening for religious leaders.
Warner Bros/20TH Century Fox also confirmed that the official debut of Gibson’s film in Argentina will be on April 8, Holy Thursday.
Although the number of screens on which the movie will be shown has not yet been determined, various organizations have begun promoting the film which promises to become the most widely viewed Christian film of all time.
This week it is expected that the dates for the film’s debut in the rest of Latin America will be announced.
